I picked this one because Vigleik and Shihchi took me to Costco last weekend and I got a huge bag of frozen chicken breasts. So I thought I would make this one to use a few of them.This dish wasn't bad -- I just didn't love it. Cold poached chicken is rarely something that I get excited about. This chicken was poached in water, rice wine, and ginger -- the flavors of the sake and ginger were very mild in the chicken breast, but still nice. I wasn't a huge fan of the oil though. It had good flavor, but it was, of course, really oily. So the dish was essentially cold chicken in oil. Now, if I wanted to eat cold chicken in oil, I would probably go with this dish, but it's just not a type of dish that I can get too excited about.
I made this for lunch yesterday. Last night the homeless shelter had a volunteer appreciation party at the aquarium. Jacob came with me and we had a very nice dinner sitting poolside next to the penguin exhibit.
I was out a few nights ago with a friend and we were talking about what we each think is sexy. I offered that I thought men in flip-flops were sexy. He said women with big breasts were sexy, etc... It went on like this for a while. At some point I said that people who know what they want are sexy. He turned to me when I said that and asked, "Do you know what you want?" The question gave me pause. I usually know exactly what I want. I am very decisive and committed to the decisions I make, for better or for worse. Lately though, I feel very indecisive in certain arenas of my life. It's unusual for me, and frankly, a little bit uncomfortable. I have spent much of this break trying to figure out what it is that I want. But as the end of break approaches, I'm not so sure I've really made any progress...
